Copiague Community Cares (CCC) is a community coalition comprised of parents, teachers, law enforcement, businesses, religious leaders, health providers and other community activists working together to make the Copiague community safer, healthier and drug-free.
This Community Coalition is a not-for-profit organization founded by Sharon Fattoruso, Dagmar Marino and Lori Prisco.
We are working with the Suffolk County Prevention Resource Center who is committed to facilitating partnerships among schools, communities and prevention providers to focus on the provision of effective strategies to deal with alcohol, drug, and tobacco abuse and problem gambling.
The PRC functions as a centralized clearinghouse of resources for youth, parents, professionals, treatment providers, educators, the media and the general public. They provide this education through a comprehensive continuum of resources, training’s, and community-related services.
The mission of the Copiague Community Cares coalition is to cultivate a community spirit using the energy, passion and commitment of resident, business, professional, educational, law enforcement, faith-based and government representatives, to promote awareness, knowledge and actions aimed at the prevention of underage drinking and substance abuse in our youth and adults.
